as these four republicans, senators lee, paul, rubio, and shelby. not a boating were senators jim demint, the republican of south carolina. he is retiring. senators kirk and lautenberg as well. here was the reaction from all four house republican leaders. it put this out in a joint statement. here is what they had to say -- the house will honor its commitment to consider the senate agreement if it is passed. decisions about whether the house will seek to a set -- to except or amend the measure will not be made and house members and the american people had been able to review the legislation. the house is expected to come in at noon today. there are some reports that a boat could happen as early as this afternoon. the house minority lindsey -- pine ridge -- house minority leader nancy pelosi tweeted a statement last night about when this bill might come to the house. she had to say, when a final agreement is reached and passed by the senate, i will present it to the house democratic caucus. from "the new york times," -- here is a "-- a quote -- we are getting your take on this. the senate
the senate the resignation of jim demint of south carolina which shall be printed in the record. mr. reid: mr. president i now ask unanimous consent the senate proceed to executive session and the "help" committee be discharged from further consideration of presidential nomination 1404 and that the senate proceed to vote without intervening action or debate on the nomination, the motion to reconsider be considered made and laid on the table with no intervening action or debate and that no further statements be in order to the nomination, that any statements related to this matter be printed in the record and the president be immediately notified of the senate's action. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. reid: i ask unanimous consent the foreign relations committee be discharged from further consideration of presidential nominations 1928 and 1951. that the nominations be confirmed, the motion to reconsider be considered made and laid on the table with no intervening action or debate, that no further motions be in order to the nominations that any related statements be printed in the
under a jim crow system, okay? now we're talking about the people who get preferences now were born in 1994. that doesn't seem like very long ago to somebody my age. 994. that's, you know, 30 years after the 1964 civil rights act. according to the latest census, one in four americans now describe themselves as being something other than white. african-americans are not the largest minority group anymore. they haven't been for a while. latinos are a larger minority group than african-americans are. and neither one of them is the fastest-growing racial minority group. the fastest-growing racial minority group is asian-americans. african-americans are growing at only a 12.3% rate, white americans at only a 5.7% rate. another rapidly-growing group are people like our president who could check more than one box in the race and ethnicity section of their questionnaire. seems to me, and i think in the supreme court, that in a country like that we cannot have a legal regime that sorts people according to their skin color and what country their an access or to haves came from and treat some
's stay on the subject of guns and what to do about them. congressman jim moran says there is a disconnect between the national rifle association's leadership and the nra members. the democrat from virginia is pushing a package of gun reforms he says most nra members support. and representative moran joins me now live from washington. good to have you with us. >> good to be with you, thank you. >> congressman, when many politicians think about the nra, they think about this legion of people who stand shoulder to shoulder with wayne lapierre and the leadership and what he says they believe. you believe, though, that the nra leadership is out of touch with the membership. why? >> well, this bill that we're introducing on the first session of the next congress has five measures where two-thirds of nra membership support them. in fact, in some cases one of them is supported by 79% of the nra members. so i do think there is a disconnect between the nra members and the gun manufacturers who basically pay the salaries of the nra leadership. but what this would do is to require background checks,
performance of the year. totally a outplaying the new york giants. jim caldwell's second week as offensive coordinator is much better than his first although he says there was no drastic change in strategy. >> i think the guys executed extremely well. that is the bottom line. when they are executing well, it does not matter what plays. you know the old adage -- take care of the little things and the big things will take care of themselves. that is kind of what we believe. >> good philosophy. ed reed out $55,000, that is what he was fined for for this hit on victor cruz. if you are a defensive back you have a major problem. the league said do not lead with your helmet, but your shoulder, and ed does that and still gets fine. if you cannot lead with your shoulder without having your head somewhere near your shoulder. it is impossible. the force -- fourth time find in three years. the second this year i was in the locker room when he was asked about the nea says, i don't know what to do. they tell me to hit with my shoulder and i do and i still did find. it will be interesting to see how both
and jim was forced out of office. they went after newt. that is one of the things that started this movement. over time, i think it has become political as well as personal. much more political and personal. >> she said raising cain, are -- you will the the gavel for the oversight committee and use that to raise the number of investigations especially of the clinton administration. what do you see as your legacy of that tenure? >> i think bill clinton, president clinton and secretary as secretary -- hilary as secretary of state do not like me very much. i was chair of the government oversight committee during the time we were investigating whitewater and we were investigating campaign contributions that came from sources outside the united states and from various people. there was an awful lot to that. we had people testifying like ohnny chonung, they had contributed money to gain favor with the white house. and they came into the kitchen at hong kong and said we wonder -- we like your president and we want to contribute to his campaign. the man who said that was the equivalent

. and, you know, i've met with jim rogers of -- >> duke energy? >> duke energy, and then, the one -- the other one in new jersey, the big one, and then the florida light and power and i forget the names, but all these guys say that, if you would give us knowledge of how that carbon price is gonna rise, we can deal with that. we will make the investments so that electricity becomes carbon free over a few decades. they -- but we've got to give them that. if we don't give them that, then they're not gonna do it. as long as they can get away with coal plants as the cheapest energy or now gas as a cheaper -- that's what they will use. so we -- they -- we-- some of them have a heart and they understand this and they have children and grandchildren, too. so they could be our friend, but as long -- but if they're doing -- like the ceo of exxon mobil and like the koch brothers, and if they fund disinformation and actual change in textbooks, that's the thing which i'm over -- between christmas and new year, i have an appointment to talk to legal scholars again because i think we should file
a mother and handed from pillar to post to his grandmother, no education and segregation, jim crow laws and more -- he rose above it and insisted that his grandson rise above it. fight it, participate, eliminate the wrong, but not be consumed by it or destroyed by it. i don't think you can get much greater than that. >> you and i are huge lincoln men. do you think at all in the culture that lincoln still gets his due? in so many ways, so much talk about the founding fathers and yet you said house divided speech. because of a contradiction and frederick douglass and others, that has a claim to be the greatest generation too. dewey today in our law and our culture give enough credit to the re-founding? >> i like to think of the great moments in our history when we talk about of course the revolution certainly the constitution that we celebrate now, 225 years. it's all coming apart and the country as we know it today is reshaped after the civil war. you teach in the area of the constitutional law. you are an expert. what would it look like if there were no 14th amendment passed? what would
is out of step with its members. joining me now is virginia congressman jim moran. briefly, let me ask you first about the fiscal cliff because i have you here. you and your members will get back to work tomorrow. i'm wondering is there going to be a last ditch effort to avoid this and what do you think is going to happen? >> i think the likelihood is that we go over the cliff, martin. and, of course, that's my primary focus because my congressional district would be the hardest hit if beat go over the fiscal cliff. i've got tens of thousands of federal employees and a great deal of defense spending would be at risk. so if we don't suspend the sequester and it looks like this very small deal may not even achieve that, then i'd have to be a "no" vote. so if i had to guess right now, i don't think we're going to be able to reach a deal no matter how small it might be. of course, at the very best, all we would do is stumble forward for a couple more months until we hit the debt ceiling and then face another crisis which is really a crisis of confidence in the government. i just can't imag

from jim in hot springs national park, arkansas. what kind of business do you own? caller: the last one i had, i was in the construction business. and when i sold my last house i decided to move too hot springs, the first resort in america. host: you are a retired business owner? caller: right. host: if you were still running your business, how would you be looking at the fiscal cliff? caller: i've got some ideas i would like to say. the first thing we would do is eliminate all the people that do the free housing and food stamps and by about all those office expenses and just go with an earned income credits that would not exceed 15 cows and dollars per year. -- $15,000.ould that affec it would help reduce the need for taxes, so they would have more money for others things, rather than paying taxes. if the current welfare system pays people as much as $45,000 a year to add up all the benefits, the free medical, with medical,to doctors or hospitals would cause normally $1,500 a month, but an insurance company for a family, and they get about $800 a month for free housing and another $70

that would vote against it because he is a fairly conservative republican. host: he will be replacing jim demint in the senate, who is stepping down. jim demint, one of three that did not vote last night. guest: i do not know if that means he was not here, or he abstained. i imagine he could not have voted to support this. host: donna, independent caller. caller: my concern is that i am basically lost in the cracks. i was a hard worker, paid my taxes, i had an accident, and now i have cancer. i get my medicare, but still i am having to pay for more insurance. my social security check went up, but i have to pay the high price of medical care because of the bills, and it is not fair because i can not get supplemental insurance to help me pay for my disease. i do not think it is fair enough to where i am lost in the crack, and i can barely make it. all of my money goes directly to medical costs. about i'm sorry to hear that, if a tragedy, but she points out the problem. when you go after 2% of the taxpayers and small businesses to fix the problems better on our shoulders, it is picking the w
been going on for years in iowa, my friend, former colleague, jim leech and i had written about that. it's happening in california, in arizona, even a little bit in florida. that is part of the problem. nationally they got more than a million more votes than republicans who ran for the house of representatives. yet they come into this with a 5-vote margin and there are some areas where in north carolina there were more votes for democrats than republicans but there are only 20 -- 27% of the representatives are democrats. it confuses the notion of mandate. the president won decisively, the president picked up ground and we had a million more votes nationwide for the house of representatives. that doesn't sound like much of a national mandate to continue the policies of the republicans over the last decade or so. host: let's go to the republican line, david from ohio. i would love to be able to buy my children ferraris or the president kept on saying he wanted a balanced attack. to this problem. which i agree that you had to increase the revenues, but you also got to address the spendi
some of the senators we're talking about. senator jim demint is retiring at the end of this congress. he will become the head of the very conservative heritage foundation. it might be good for him in his new position to be the person that stopped the tax increase from going to affect, who stopped the senate from voting for a tax increase. i am not saying he will do it, but it just takes one senator to stop this. this is the body we are relying on to get a deal. it is hard to imagine. host: josh gordon? guest: in 2011, a house proved unable or unwilling to act. it was a deal with senator reid and senator mcconnell that paved the way for the deal that led us to where we are now. the deal was located in the senate before the house jumped on. guest: this is a little different. he is right. that is what led to the super committee being formed. that failed. we ended up with the fiscal cliff. that was not a tax increase. one thing important to the republican base is tax increases. this becomes a more sensitive issue in the current environment. the debt ceiling is also important to the repub
